Yes, you need to remove the element taking note of the connections and wire colors. Also note the seals used on the element. Remember that sometimes a "cold" element does not show the fault and only once heated does the "short circuit" show. Take the element with you to the dealer as many different elements (shapes and sizes as well as electrical connections on elements are available).

Hi, i have owned my Hotpoint Ultima WT960 washer for 3 years now with no problems, however recently the washer keeps tripping my consumer box. it only trips on the main wash cycles and is fine on rinse and...


I would concur that is probably the element and or thermistor attached to the element that is causing the problem.
Before commiting to replace, try disconnecting the supply to the element and trying it again, if it does not trip, then this proves element and or thermistor faulty.

Hotpoint DY46X: When turning on the main oven it immediately trips out the power circuit.


If it is a fan assisted oven, then I would suspect that the oven element is faulty, disconnect the element, and try again, if it does not trip, then element is faulty, if it still trips, then you are goimg to have to look elsewhere for prob.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

Cycle starts but water doesn't fill past heating elements.


I think that the problem is the water inlet valve if the machine is not filling at all.

If the machine is not filling to the correct level, it may be the float switch.

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:


With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

I think that what you're seeing is a faulty water heating element. The element is kept switched off until the pressure switch (the thing on the end of the clear tube) detects that there's enough water in the machine for it to be safe to start heating without burning the element out. If the element is faulty, it will take out your earth leakage trip as soon as the pressure switch applies power(the usual failure mode is pinhole leaks in the element sheath, allowing water in to compromise the powdered mineral insulation inside). Confirm by running few cold wash cycles. If the machine works fine with these, but fails when you have a warm cycle selected, then element it is. The element lives in the bottom of the drum. You should be able to get a new one on the net for under £23. A.
